CATCHING UP

after days of hectic preparations for our opening reception, I am pleased to report that all the effort, the planning, and a bit of worrying, were rewarded with a great trunout and an enthusiastic reception of the art. We sold a lot of art, served a lot of food, and poured a lot of wine during a very festive evening.

For the entire week before the opening we lived with sun-filled blue, cloudless skies with temperatures in the low 70s. Saturday morning greeted us with gray damp skies and intermittent rain throughout the day. Then, about 20 minutes before our 5 PM opening, the sun broke through and the sky outside the gallery entrance revealed....






and I knew then and there that the evening ahead was full of promise, not just for me, but for the 2 other opening receptions taking place in Lowertown that night. It was THE place to be.

What a beautiful image of the rainbow - no wonder the exhibition went well! I am so glad your painting is thriving... and I do like the Tuscan piece, before and after your wife's corrections :)
